Mark Twain

Culture Shock

Shorty Pants—Director Kristen Loree will be delving into some of the less conspicuous short pieces in the Mark Twain canon, such as “Was it Heaven? Or Hell?,” “Carnival of Crime and Connecticut,” “Eve's Diary,” “Advice to Girls,” “Adam's Diary” and other brief work by the master of socially incisive humor. Twain Shorts apparently takes plenty of artistic license with Twain's work. Odds are pretty high this will be a hoot. The show opens this weekend at Sol Arts (712 Central SW). Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., through June 4. For more information or to make reservations, call 244-0049.

Ann Bromberg

Arts Interview

Immigration Nation

An interview with Ann Bromberg

For the past year and a half, artists Ann Bromberg and Steve Teeters collaborated on Migrating Feast, a new exhibit at the Albuquerque Museum that celebrates families who immigrated to the Southwest from all over the world. Teeters, based in Lubbock, Texas, and Bromberg, based in Albuquerque, use old photographs, notes and recipes to create their sensual pieces. With these artifacts, the two have created magnificently collaged images that are incorporated into and on beautiful antique suitcases, spice cabinets, pot racks, violin cases and a handmade ferris wheels—to name just a few items. It's fascinating, poetic work.

House of War: The Pentagon and the Disastrous Rise of American Power

Sept. 11, 2001, was going to be a ceremonial day for the Pentagon before Flight 77 slammed into its outer ring. Sixty years earlier to the day, ground was broken for the building. War raged then in Europe, so the ceremony was small and brief—there was a lot of work to do. Besides, Franklin Roosevelt intended the structure to be temporary.
